LARGO, FL: Lila Chambers, 88 of Largo, Florida was called by the Lord on January 10, 2013. She passed peacefully at Largo Medical Center with the comfort of her family by her side.
She resided at the beautiful assisted living community of Arbor Terrace (formerly Barrington Terrace) in Largo where she loved her many friends and the superb caring staff. She spent many days enjoying the numerous activities and friendships. She called it her "little castle in Florida". She moved to the Largo area in 2003 from her home in Waverly, Ohio. Her life was devoted to her family as a loving and caring wife, mother, sister and grandmother. She was a modest, humble person who wanted the best for others, and asked nothing for herself. Her many friends and family considered her to be a very special person. Her most recent "great time" was the marriage of her grandson Matt to Renee in September. She danced at the wedding and outlasted most of the family well into the evening hours. On this same evening she enjoyed the music of her Blues guitarist/singer grandson Sean who dedicated a special song to her.
She was preceded in death by her husband Homer; youngest son Greg; parents Robert and Edith Ashworth; brother Donald Ashworth; and sister Mary Stutler.
She is survived by two loving sons, Robert (Ginny), Seminole FL, Larry (Paula), Springfield, OH; two grandsons, Matthew Chambers (Renee), St.
Petersburg, FL and Sean Chambers, Ft. Myers, FL; her sister, Edna Osborne and nephew, David Osborne, both of St. Albans, WV; nephew, Donnie Ashworth, Cleveland, OH; and special person/loving family member, Virginia Massimo, Dunedin, FL.
The family wishes to express their heart-felt gratitude to the professional, dedicated and loving staff at Arbor Terrace for their exceptional service and support of Lila.
